More fresh snow

12th March 2020

Lochaber got more snow than was expected in the last 24 hours and both natural and human triggered avalanches were recorded. Most climbers seemed to be abandoning or altering plans and ski tourers were looking for slopes of less than 30 degrees.

Poor visibility made taking photos difficult but hopefully those below from Ben Nevis give some idea of the current conditions.

Fresh snow fell at lower levels last night and was slowly melting today.
